Jenova - Final Fantasy VII





Final Fantasy VII was the game that got me hooked on the series, as it was for the majority of the fans.

To this very day, I struggle to determine what my favourite Final Fantasy is, but FFVII will always be my first love in the series.

I found it hard to choose a cosplay from this game for various reasons, mostly because I felt like I wouldn't suit any of the main characters, but also because some are overdone to the max, or they're so minor that only hard-core fans would really recognise the character. For some reason, Jenova had completely slipped my mind, but it finally dawned on me that it's the perfect character for me.

Jenova is not a native of the Planet, it is a life-form who travelled through space on a meteor two thousand years before the game, which collided with the Planet, creating a huge wound, and this is where the culmination of it all takes place, the Northern Crater.

It is called the "Calamity from the Skies" or "Heaven's Dark Harbinger" by the Cetra, as Jenova very nearly wiped out their civilisation, with what the Cetra called "the virus".

So yeah, Jenova is pretty central to the game's events, and it's an awesome role!

Yes. Very Yes. Curious to see what you do with Jenova, how you will work her design. I will be watching the progress of this costume with interest.

Attempted a makeup test today, and yeah. No.

Gonna need to look into better face paints (and more expensive OTL). I love Snazaroo and all, but it just didn't blend well with the other colours I need in order to achieve her awkward skin tone. I still maintain that it's not blue or grey, but an in-between with a bit of pink/nude.

Till next time!

Skin colour

Jenova's skin colour is a difficult one to work out. I personally don't see it as grey, but it's definitely got tones of it, mixed with blue and even pink (when you look at the headless reference).

I think I'll start by getting this zentai, and where it'll undoubtedly be somewhat transparent, I'll wear a dark bodystocking underneath it, to protect my modesty and let the dark tone show through. If it still doesn't look right, I'll dye the outside zentai as necessary.
